tv Fox News Night With Shannon Bream FOX News March 20, 2019 8:00pm-9:00pm PDT
tonight. don't forget, my new podcast drop today, you want to listen, it's hilarious. culture, politics, everything and believe. go to open our podcastone.com or itunes. shannon bream and the phenomenal "fox news @ night" team take it from here. >> shannon: it's a fun podcast when you go out to ron, laura. you might be laughing i lose your breath over that. >> laura: have a great show. >> shannon: to begin with a fox news alert tonight, let the people see it. that is it president trump says about making special counsel robert dollars upcoming report public. also taking center stage tonight, a feud with no end in sight. as the president unloads on deceased senator john mccain for nearly 5 minutes in a visit to critical battleground state of ohio, to talk about we thought u.s. manufacturing. that too appeared on kellyanne conway staying loyal to the president as president trump feud with her husband take center stage feared breaking news from new zealand, where the there has announced plans to ban all
semiautomatic rifles in the wake of the mosque attack at hello and welcome to "fox news @ night" come on shannon bream in washington and we rima kristin fisher and the president's time in ohio, beginning with a somewhat unexpected start to his or marks today. good evening, chris and end. >> it was a bit unexpected, shannon, now republicans and mitch mcconnell, lindsey graham, two arnold schwarzenegger, all defending the late senator john mccain. it is hard to believe they still have to defend him, seven months after his death, but after what president trump said today, they felt they had no choice. >> john mccain, i enjoy him at his request, and i gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted to, which, as president, i had to approve. i don't care about this, i didn't get a thank you -- that's okay. we sent him on the way, but i wasn't a fan of john mccain. >> president trump made those remarks about the former naval aviator in front of a military audience at a plant in ohio where they build tanks.
the plant has been revitalized due to the president's push to increase military spending, hundreds of manufacturing jobs have been created, but that is good news that was drowned out by the president's comments about mccain. >> it's deplorable, what he sai said. that's what i called it from the floor of the senate. it will be deplorable seven months from now if he says it again get i will continue to speak out. if there's one thing we've got to do. >> he also attacked the late senator for torpedoing the repeal and replacement of obamacare and for his role in handing the now infamous steele dossier over to the fbi. >> john mccain received a fake and phony dossier, did you hear about the dossier? it was paid for by crooked hillary clinton, right? [boos] and john mccain got it, he got it. and what did he do?
he didn't call me. he turned it over to the fbi, hoping to put me in jeopardy. >> the mueller probe was also on the president's mind as he left the white house for ohio this morning, when asked if he special counsel's report should be released to the public, the president said "let the people see it." >> i don't mind. frankly, i told the house, if you want, let them see ed. >> ultimately, that decision is up to the attorney general. during his confirmation hearing last month, the ag would not guarantee of the special counsel's report would be made public. of course, shannon, we are waiting find out when the report will actually be released to the attorney general attorney general. >> shannon: if the game we play here in d.c. folks at home will know here first. thanks, kristin. counselor to president kellyanne conway, caught in the middle as the president and her husband are feuding, locked in a battle of words. trace gallagher picks up the story from there. >> hey, shannon peered for critics who say this feud is a
put on and george on kellyanne conway are trying to become the next james carville and mary matalin, george conway says rest assured, he truly believes the president is incompetent and has many months of presidential criticisms are legit. president trump had reportedly wanted to attacked george conway on twitter in the past, but was a barely talked out of it by aids who argued it would embolden conway and caused unnecessary drama. but this week, george conway question the president's mental health, "all americans should be thinking seriously now about trump's mental condition and psychological state, including and especially the media, congress, and the vice president and cabinet." and that is when the gloves came off. watch. >> he's a whack job, there is no question about it, but i really don't know him. i think he is doing a tremendous disservice to a wonderful wife. kellyanne is a wonderful woman. i call him mr. kellyanne. >> the president went on to call
george conway a husband from hell, marking the first time he has weighed in on their marriage, and he has known them for years beer george on kellyanne conway lived in trump tower manhattan. kellyanne served on the trump tower condo board, and in the early days to the administration, george conway was considered for a top job in the justice department, until he pulled himself out of the running. conway now admits, wishing his wife did not work at the white house. but says his criticism of the president might actually help his marriage because he gets it off his chest and doesn't yell at his wife. while kellyanne conway has tried not to comment about her husband's comments, today she told "politico" she was grateful the president supported her, "the president is obviously defending me. he can privately say to me, honey, you are a distraction, we love you, you will always be part of the family, but go be with your kids, they need you, go make $1 million an hour, go do that, honey. it's the opposite." she also said her effectiveness as the president's counselor has
not been affected by trump slamming her husband and peered shannon? >> shannon: trace gallagher, thank you very much. it's all there. kellyanne conway staying with the president. daily color white house correspondent saagar enjeti, and dave brown. welcome to all of you. it feels like the housewives of d.c. situation. i don't know what is going on get i want to read something. trace alluded to this, george conway was asked, are you playing both sides of that no matter what happens, long-term, you have somewhere to go with this? the president calls her husband, kellyanne conway, a total loser, has been from, and whack. george conway said this to "the new york times" "i almost wish that were so. this is just my way of expressing my views. i don't end up getting an argument at home about it." morgan, i don't know about you, i would certainly be getting in arguments about this at home with the president was ripping my husband on twitter.
>> it's a little awkward, to say the least, but i mean, everyone has their own marriage on the way they do things. it's different than the way i do mine, but i'm not getting in the middle of it. i think it is unprecedented what we are seeing, and for me, i think this is just a slow news week, so this is yet another distraction for the media because there are not any policy things to latch onto, so this is what we are focusing on. i think eliane has done amazing work on the opioid epidemic. as fun as it is where they media to get on twitter, i don't think the average american is focused on this at all. in fact, i think our viewers around the kind you're focused on what this administration is getting done could i hope kellyanne keeps a clear head and continues to work on the opioid epidemic because it is vitally important and serious, the rest of the stuff is not serious.
>> shannon: in the meantime, dave, do you think there is part of this couple, they have some kind of understanding, privately, about the public spat? i think will be hard to go home and be in the middle of this thing if you didn't both understand that some of this is for show, maybe not. [laughter] the guys don't want to touch this. >> i don't want to talk about someone else's marriage. i don't know. what i do know is i think the exchange i read on twitter from the president directed to george conway, it's further evidence of how this president debases the office and the way he talks on twitter. think we saw that when he talked about senator mccain, deceased senator mccain but i don't know if they have a an arrangement, i don't know what is going on in their home. i wish them well. i wish the president would stop attacking people on twitter. and i think mr. conway is bringing up some points that he clearly believes are incredibly important and is trying to communicate those to the american people. >> shannon: he brought something that upset the president, or at least it seemed like it got his attention, saagar, with the diagnostic
manual description of personality disorders and hinting this is what the president is. kellyanne conway said about this, but you think you should respond when somebody, referring to her husband, a nonmedical professional, accusing him of having a mental disorder, do you think you should take that sitting down? defending the president to response to her husband's tweets. >> she is extremely loyal to her boss, to our point, george conway has been almost displaying some of these characteristics himself in the level of how much he wants to keep himself in the media, with this tension. posting screenshots about narcissistic personality disorder. they are feeding into a loop, which is keeping this going, and like dave, i don't want to sit here and speculate about somebody's marriage. it feels grimy, he feels gross, and so i will just stick to the facts we know. >> shannon: i want to play something, we talked about this today, the president went on an important visit to a manufacturing area in ohio, a plant where he wanted to talk about the importance of what he
has done to try to bring the jobs back to the u.s. and highlight positives he has done. but he spent several minutes going after the late senator john mccain, and it got a lot of attention. we want to play just some snippets from that. >> so i have to be honest, i never liked him much. he turned it over to the fbi, hoping to put me in jeopardy. and that's not the nicest thing to do. he said two hours before he was voting to repeal and replace. mccain didn't get the job done for our great vets and of the va. we are in a war in the middle east that mccain pushed so hard. i wasn't a fan of john mccain. >> shannon: why do you think he is still so engaged in this view would come even after the senator's death? >> a lot of people don't understand the genesis of this is being upset about the role senator mccain and his aides played in the dissemination of
the steele dossier. some of the advisors to the president are saying, sir, stop talking about his funeral and attacking him personally so we can talk about the legitimate policy disagreements, which was the dissemination of the steele dossier, having key aides brief reporters, handing those things over to the fbi, and playing a very big role in making sure it made its way to the fbi. that is the actual disagreement with senator mccain that the president has right now. >> shannon: meghan mccain has had to relive a lot of this about her father and his passing, which he is still grieving care she said today she thinks her dad would think it is hilarious that the president is still making headlines with his name paired but quickly, dave, and the morgan come i want you to weigh in on this. >> i was trying to think about what president reagan would say in a situation like this. i was trying to conceive of a situation were president reagan would ever talk about a member of the senate, a public servant, in the way that this president has talked about john mccain.
democrat or republican. i just don't think it is conceivable. add me to the litany of romney calling exemplary -- it's a tragedy. >> shannon: a lot of people siding with the memory of senator mccain. >> if you look back at the congressional testimony and all of the records that we have seen over the past couple of years, it looks like the fbi actually had this information in this dossier well before senator mccain gave it to them. so i would take a little bit of issue with the record there. it doesn't look like this investigation was predicated upon mccain giving it to him, i think they have this information for quite some time. in fact, christopher steele, rightly or wrongly, probably wrongly come appears to have been a source for quite some time. i think there is still a lot of unanswered questions here that we think, i think the senate judiciary will get to the bottom of. >> shannon: a lot of bad blood between very prominent republicans over this. all right, that is our panel.

♪ >> shannon: presidential hopeful democratic senator kirsten gillibrand is on her way to nevada tonight after spending the day campaigning in iowa, showing off a t-shirt, and as you can see, her workout skills. she is also under fire from the left over comments today on opioids. lauren blanchard is here with that story. >> good evening, shannon. here is what senator gillibrand suggested. doctors should be limited when
it comes to opioid prescriptions for acute pain, only allowing up to a seven days worth. >> new york senator kirsten gillibrand, who officially declared on sunday, tweeting last week, and repeating in iowa this week, but no one needs a months supply for a wisdom tooth extraction, and 30, 60, 90 day opioid prescriptions end up being stored in medicine cabinets. plus, gillibrand telling an msnbc town hall that drug companies, who have contributed to the opioid crisis, should be prosecuted. >> what we have to do is take on the drug manufacturers who purposely made these drugs stronger, more addictive, and now that we have the documents, we know they did it because they wanted record sales. >> an opinion writer for the "philadelphia inquirer" saying a blanket seven-day prescription rule like the one gillibrand proposes takes descriptions dem the doctor and could have unintended consequences, saying "this is bad policy that will
not save lives and will hurt chronic pain patients, including driving people to commit suicide." but jell-o brand isn't alone coming the 2020 democratic field, when it comes to taking on big pharma. pharma. beto o'rourke, campaigning in new hampshire, a state rocked by the opioid crisis, saying executives at companies that recklessly pushed opioids should get jail time. he also suggested allowing access to marijuana could help ease the opioid academic. >> we have a full prosecution and accountability for those who are responsible for the death of tens of thousands of americans. we are 4% of the globe's population, we consume 85% of the opioids. >> when it comes to marijuana, former colorado governor in 2020 democrat john hickenlooper, who was once against legalizing weed, now says the decision over decriminalizing use should be a state, not federal, issue. he also said he supports states deciding whether or not to
provide addicts safe injection sites for drugs like heroin and cocaine. shannon? spiel lauren blanchard, thank you very much. senator gillibrand also saying that illegal immigrants should have the ability to pay into social security and get the benefits. let's talk a lot of 2020 chatter today and bring back the power panel, morgan ortagus, saagar enjeti, and dave brown. okay, senator gillibrand think there are no illegal humans, made a great change on where she was previously on this issue of immigration. that has been noted by a lot of people, including the "washington examiner," saying that gillibrand's comments are striking given her past as an immigration hawk. in 2009, the new york senator voted to increase funding for i.c.e. and one said she thinks english should be the national language for different chatter today. >> you are seeing the senator if all position, which politicians do. a lot of politicians evolve their position on issues. think you are seeing her
calibrates aware many in the democratic primary voting base are on the issue of immigration. i think you are also seeing a pretty visceral, direct, and emotional response to the abject tragedy and chaos caused by this administration at the border, the separation of families. we'll wait a minute. we've got to stop there. customs and border patrol, we've all seen the numbers showing the huge spike in people coming with children, some of them not actually families, many of them are, but they know if they come as that unit, it is very unlikely they are going to get turned away. there's only a certain amount of time they can be held. i want to read something from "the wall street journal" on this. they say starting this week, hundreds of families caught each day in the rio grande valley area are being released by border patrol agents. officials say they are making the change because of crowding on safety concerns. as the volume of families has reached record levels in the past several months, immigration authorities have struggled to make room for them all. morgan, we do a lot of these folks are being detained --
being released into the u.s., given a court date, many of them not on bonds, not being monitored by a bracelet in any way. it fulfills the plan that a lot of people want anyway, for them to be able to come here illegally and then be released into the u.s. with no monitoring. >> right, and that is exactly why you pointed out at the beginning of the segment that we have seen such a makeover by senator gillibrand on this and many issues. she actually has the reputation in the senate for being a moderate for quite some time. i think the big difference, between her and someone like elizabeth warren, elizabeth warren is known for the positions. you can disagree with her on a lot a policy, but they seem very genuine, they seem very sincere. when i see senator gillibrand, it seems a very hyper delivery, like she is really trying to make all of us believe that she really is a liberal. and i don't find it as sincere as you would, say, bernie sanders or elizabeth warren, people who i do not agree with, but who are of how these positions long time.
she has had quite the career makeover here. the question for me, and someone who used to be a moderate, like senator gillibrand, running to such an extreme left position, what is any nominee of his party going to be forced to take as it relates to the 2020 election? i just don't see any chance for any sort of moderate survival at this point. >> shannon: saagar, you know we think they are generally, historically, that is what happens, after the primaries on both sides are done. >> what they are all fighting for is a way to differentiate themselves among the progressive democratic base. a senator gillibrand how social and security for illegal immigrants from elizabeth warren is abolishing the college, many others have packing the courts. these are ways to get different attention, blow up in progressive media sphere, drive advertising dollars, and that is how they generate income and that is how they generate fund-raising dollars, themselve themselves. >> shannon: i also want to ask you about something you've been in the middle of this week. you were accused by a reporter
at another station, another network, of lobbing a softball question to the president on the president of brazil yesterday in the rose garden when you asked about the impact of socialism. to be fair, i asked president bolsonaro the same question because i think it is a fair question to ask. it was called a softball by some folks, took past interviews and questions from this interview, saying president obama was having his best week ever. do we think it was a double standard or fare to come after that question? speak with a double standard. it's not news to ask the president of the united states about court packing, and then to ask a foreign leader what would happen if a socialist were to replace president trump in office. some people get upset by that, they would rather ask about the best week ever, one of his colleagues want to ask president obama about how enchanted he was in the oval office. i can only aspire to that journalistic standards set by
them. >> shannon: are you enchanted by his question? >> asking about someone else's marriage. >> shannon: you've got to keep it real, he is right there. >> here's what i would say on this. saagar, i'm not going to ever tell you how to do your job, i just hope every member of the media asks the president tough and fair questions. >> shannon: regardless of party. although there are a lot of people on twitter and social media who love to tell us how to do our jobs. speak on the left to tell us what to wear and how to do our hair. >> shannon: lip gloss included, everything. >> you're the best, shannon, no one can beat you with that, anyway. >> shannon: my earring game is strong. >> it is! i tried for you, shannon, i brought my earring game tonight. >> shannon: you are always beautiful and brilliant. as the gentleman, we thank you, power panel. we've got breaking news on guns. ♪ ? yeah, i thought doing some hibachi grilling would help take my mind off it all.

>> shannon: this is a fox news alert. new zealand's prime minister announcing a ban on all high-capacity magazines and "military style semiautomatic rifles" in the wake of the deadly mass shootings at multiple mosques in christchurch. jacinda ardern says it will be followed by legislation next month peerage added the man arrested for the shooting purchased his weapons legally and enhance their capacity by using 30 round magazines. consorts reported a spike in gun sales over the past few days with talk emerging over so-called panic buying, one person saying he did not support a knee-jerk response to the massacre. senator bernie sanders tweeting tonight, this is what real action to stop gun violence looks like. we must follow new zealand's lead, take on the nra, and family sale and distribution of assault weapons in the united states." well, the islamic state will be gone by tonight, that is what the president is promising while showing a map plotting out just how much territory the terror
group lost in syria since he took office. fox news' benjamin hall has exclusive access to the front lines of the battle for syria. >> battle weary and tired, syrian democratic forces inside are still trying to finish off isis, and the toll shows in their faces. it is thought that isis have now been pushed back right to the river edge on the far side of their tented city. fox news is following the story on the ground. we are the only news team to have come this far forward into this part of the village. the fact is, although they have recaptured this area, it is still believed to be littered with booby-traps and ieds. that may take months if not years to clear. the scale of devastation is incredible. it is hard to imagine how they survived the barrage, but everyone acknowledges that without u.s. support, it would have taken far longer. for foreign half years, isis
rolled over this territory with an iron fist. this was their heartland, and they were so dug in that the only way to push them back to get rid of them was to flatten whole villages. a destruction like this goes on for miles, and craters like this are a reminder of the critical role played by u.s. air power. can still hear jets overhead. sts fighters are also grateful for the u.s., not just for their help in the battle, but for the decision to be troops when it is done. reports suggest the figure may be around 1,000 and staying. but on the ground, it is not over yet. isis continue to surprise. we just received intelligence that isis may be planning to counter attack. theories they have tunnels which stretched behind us, now. they're telling us we've got to get out of here. we've now pulled back a short distance from the front lines, and now everyone is just waiting
for news that the offensive has ended, but nobody wants to guess anymore when that might be. shannon? >> shannon: benjamin hall, thank you very much. secretary of state mike pompeo met with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and promised the step up the pressure on iran, which is real regards an existential threat. correspondent gillian turner reports from the state department about the danger from the iranian militar military. >> on day two of his tour across the mideast, secretary of state mike pompeo launched a major push to get one of iran's military branches, the revolutionary guard corps, officially branded a terrorist organization. the group is tasked with protecting around islamic heritage coming over the years, has taken on an outsized role in every part of iranian society. this morning in kuwait, pompeo compared the group to some of the world's most dangerous terrorists. >> we all have the same set of threats from the threats from al qaeda and isis, threats from
the islamic republic and of iran, and we all are working diligently to find a path forward. >> has been ten months since the administration pulled out of the iran nuclear deal, and while most of the international community has remained fixated on the nuclear issue, sources tell fox news pompeo has been zeroing in on a different threat. what he says is iranian terrorism. this afternoon israel, pompeo and prime minister netanyahu agreed that influence in the region is a top priority. >> we spent the first part of our meeting discussing exactly how to do that, and i think there are ways that will intensify the pressure even more. >> iran's president, meanwhile, has been playing the blame game. >> put all of your curses on those who created the current situation for the country. americans did this. >> the trump administration says iran's terrorist activity doesn't stop at its own borders. for years, it has been spreading tentacles ever deeper inside iraq, and the secretary of state has grown increasingly alarmed about iraqi militants taking
orders from tehran. >> there is no doubt they have their eyes set on taking control of the country. i don't think that is good for the iraqi people, and i notice not good for the united states of america. >> it would be a big deal, and the first time the united states put a terrorist label on a foreign government's military parts of national security officials warning of a move would put american troops and intel operatives at risk. in washington, gillian turner, fox news. >> shannon: and we will talk to secretary pompeo tomorrow night, right here on this program. as he continues to travel through the middle east, do not miss this fox news at night exclusive, tomorrow night, with secretary pompeo, 11:00 p.m. eastern. deadly chaos in miami, armed riot police called in to crackdown on out-of-control spring breakers. ben shapiro takes a look at how social media is helping to fuel the melee in miami. ♪ fact is, every insurance company hopes you drive safely.

same history, and new zealand has 1.2 million guns in circulation on the guns are not being mandated to be turned in, they can be retained by the population at large. they are offering a cash buyback program, tried to think similar in australia, only one-third of those guns were turned in. any attempts to correlate the number of mass shootings of the number of guns in a society seems to be kind of a sale. just, by data, norway is not a place with tons of guns for sale. and yet you've had an enormous number's of death and mass shootings. the attempt to make correlation into equal causation, the number of guns in a society equaling sporadic incidences of mass violence, that just doesn't seem to statistically hold. spin on the there, as you mentioned with the guns related to the number of incidents, the rate in australia is exceptionally low, a lot of talk about getting the guns legally, but wasn't legally carrying them, and we will see how this
spills over into the conversation here. you have the second amendment, which changes the conversation and get i to talk about miami, where things in miami beach have gotten really bad the first few weeks of spring break and they are cracking down. this is what has happened. brawls come a lot of them ending up on social media going viral, one woman knocked unconscious, serving drinks to passengers and another car while they are moving come another woman fell out of a moving car, and she was killed while she was run over. showing up in an emergency meeting last night saying it is a ridiculous and out-of-control, so now the police are going to start wearing riot gear to patrol the streets of miami beach and spring break there and speak a lot of people upset about this sort of stuff because they're afraid of the police and think police showing up in riot gear or some sort of imposition. here is the reality. if you don't want the police showing up, then you probably shouldn't be having public meetings. you want to cut down on the crime rate, and the police will stop worrying about these particular areas. in the name of somehow, college
fraternity nonsense, it's kind of insane, frankly. >> shannon: it says a lot about our society. "the "miami times"" is calling this crackdown potentially racist, saying it represents yet another turn in miami beach's racist turn and its reputation as a party town, using coding language for large crowds of black and brown partygoers but is it racist, ben? >> i don't see what race has anything to do with crimes being committed and the police showing up. if you don't want the police to show up, then you probably shouldn't commit crimes. for several years, seems like there weren't a lot of police there and that is why the police have now raised their presence in the area the area. >> shannon: i feel like my spring break, i missed all of that excitement. we were having bible studies on the beach. pretty tame compared to all of this. i want to talk to you about another incident that happened, i believe at the university of michigan. they put together pro-life group, got a permit, have a school's permission i put together something they called the cemetery of the innocent, we see missed on the other college
campuses, where a pro-life group will put crosses along a public park or an area to commemorate they say the lives of children lost during abortion. there was a woman who was confronted about picking up these crosses come i think we have a video we can play here. >> is there a reason why you're doing this? >> i disagree with that. >> okay, but this is in your property. >> the conversation is it going to work. putting this garbage on the campus, we realize this is public property and you are telling us to do this, i'm assuming. >> shannon: they had a permit, but once the police showed up and said you can't take away people's property, they said they were picking up garbage, and through the bag and left it. what do you make of this? >> obviously there is a massive divide in the country, politically, right now that is resulting in people not taking into account the fact that there are people who are allowed to have other opinions, and simply because you believe unborn babies are not in fact unborn babies, but in fact are a cluster of cells, doesn't give you the right to take away somebody's work or symbolism.
it's bad activity, and i would assume the campus is probably going to crack down on this, as they should. >> shannon: another campus, i believe in miami, maybe somewhere in florida, last of all this happened, and they said within three days, or than a day and a half, three times, a similar cemetery for the innocent they had set up was torn down and vandalized, and had to keep asking campus police and others for help. if the conversation is so offensive that it just can't be hand? >> unfortunately, that is true of a lot of college campuses. i speak on college campuses, very often the flyers are torn down. they're trying to pay tribute to unborn children killed in the womb, and even that is too offensive. the very idea that someone disagrees means their postings ought to be torn down. to be one of the president said he is going to take action on the idea of free speech on campus, something you have brought up yourself, very frequently. then, thanks for making time for us, good luck with the book.

prime minister made a speech last friday, and they are very aware of the slow down. >> shannon: some of says publicly we can do a deal, not do a deal, fine either way, is it true for the u.s., basically the status quo is acceptable for now? >> no. the status quo is really bad for us because of intellectual property theft in such large quantities. several hundred billion a year lost by our companies. really bad treatment of our companies in china, just a whole long list of grievances we have. >> shannon: even if we make a deal, will they stop doing those things? how do we enforce that? is it possible? >> my personal opinion, they will make a deal and then not implemented. this has been their style with other countries. >> shannon: that is why the tariffs are staying? >> i support the president's comment today very much that the tariffs need to stay substantially, not just just be taken off the other chinese seem to be brokenhearted about this where they came on from
washington about three weeks ago with the idea that if they signed these in principle agreement than the tariffs would all be dropped. at the president is saying no, they stay on anyway, while we see if you are going to enforce what you need to pair this has upset the chinese in the last 24 hours. >> shannon: we understand they were spooked by what happened in vietnam with the summit between the president and kim jong un. "the wall street journal," you are quoted in this article, they say chinese leaders were unnerved by president trump's decision to abruptly break off nuclear disarmament talks with north korean leader kim jong un in february. what did they take from that? >> well, the chinese i think misled themselves. they translated ""the art of the deal"," and they thought they had president trump's number. they thought they had this worked out, the promise everything and then do nothing peer when he walked out on chairman kim, they thought, oh, my god, this could happen to us.
>> shannon: and they don't want to see that. okay, what does this uncertainty due to the market, farmers who have to plan and invest? what does it do to folks on the u.s. side of the equation? >> it gives president trump a strong incentive to get some kind of deal done. as you say, shannon. however, the problem will be friction in the future. the deal signed, let's say a month from now, and the chinese still don't implement it. we could have friction for the next several years over what they promised to do. so what president trump, i think very smartly, is doing, he saying let's login the enforcement mechanisms now and reduce the friction later. >> shannon: well, we will see. all her folks go there next week, and then they are scheduled to come back to d.c. following bad pier we will be asking a lot of questions. like those barry, thank you for coming in. >> thanks, shannon. >> shannon: tonight at midnight hero comes from the midwest where we know you are
